Volunteer Engagement

A small group of enthusiastic gardeners got together in 1989, and decided to make the suburb of Adamstown a little greener. Our first planting took place right at the beginning of the Fernleigh Track.

29 years later, we’ve moved down the Fernleigh (and throughout the Hunter).

Our community is at the heart of everything we do. We have a strong track record of building partnerships through with other community-based volunteer groups, government and non-government organisations, schools throughout the Hunter and most importantly – our members and supporters.


Volunteers guide every aspect of our operations, including:

  • Governance – we are guided by a committed voluntary Board.
  • Coastal regeneration projects
  • Seed collection and processing
  • School and community planting projects
  • General maintenance and site development
  • Administrative assistance tasks
  • Fundraising and grant development projects.

We offer:

  • Meaningful and friendly volunteer placements for those with environmental values
  • Professional development for environmental science and TAFE students
  • Mutual Obligation placements
  • Return to work trials
  • Rehabilitation and disability work placements
